Question MS Messenger Problems???

My daughter installed MS messenger and now I can't get rid of it. I've tried everything I know via Add/Remove nothing seems to work. Has anybody a suggestion on how I can delete it. It annoys me every time I use Outlook.Bl**dy kids

Go to start menu and hit 'run' and type this in :

RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\INF\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove

After that restart your pc.

They added MS Messenger to the list in the Add/Remove MS components after you install SP1...so you don't need to go thru that...

I tried that, but it doesn't uninstall Messenger. It just removes access to it from the start menu. It still comes up when I launch Outlook. You still need to do what K.I.L.E.R. said to completely get rid of it.

Saturnatoka's right its no good just trying the Add/Remove option as the bloody thing won't budge. But K.I.L.E.R's suggestion removed the sucker once and for all.

Trillian is only the greatest freeware instant messaging client in the world! It combines MSN, Yahoo, ICQ and AOL into one small, easy to use program. I've been using it since the pre 0.70's and it keeps getting better with each release. Check 'em out at www.trillian.cc

you can always just edit your group policy...that's a real powerful tool, and a bit easier than the cmd line to use...
